The US Mission to the UN, New York City.

In a light bubble, shining in the midst of the dark night, a single man stands guard, protecting the American mission: To protect America, and the World. On the upper East side, even the Big Apple is asleep, as I walk by the UN, at 2PM. The amazing architecture strikes me, and I’m drawn like a moth towards the light. I feel proud of my country, when I walk home.
